Salesforce has gotten inside out with Force.com, the platform that allows customers to run their Web sites using salesforce.com’s cloud services.
Force.com Sites gives customers the power to publish their Force.com data and applications to any Web site.
Think beyond CRM. Build more apps. Build better apps. With less cost and less hassle. Developers everywhere are using Force.com to build core business applications, like enterprise resource planning (ERP), human resource management (HRM) and supply chain management (SCM). It’s the fastest way to get from idea to app. It’s about more innovation and less infrastructure. It’s about running your business in the Cloud.
As somebody who has worked with SF team on product integration and also as a competition (with Siebel CRMOnDemand), let me say that this is something that’s very big. Force.com changes the entire notion of how enterprises look at integrating cloud services within their systems – from inside out to outside-in.
What’s your take on Force.com?
